A Quote by Alan Clements on acceptance and surrender

In one breath we are drowning in the despair of unmet expectations and in the next we're drinking a toast to the angel of destiny--pleading, fighting, compelled to surrender to the awe-filled-truth that we are clueless to who and what we are. Except, that we can enter this never-ending vastness-- reaching into the heart of each and every encounter --and give it our most human touch -- the warmth of honest communication.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on psychology, change, evolution, healing, emotions, growth, consciousness, and acceptance

The way out is the way in.

I am sure I have heard this several times from places I can't recall, but it's not already in the Gaia Quotes database, so I add this profound insight from the fields of psychological healing and spiritual evolution. It sure has helped me.

Probable source: American poet Robert Frost who said what Tsuya posted below in her comment. And Howard Nemerov said the same thing in something he wrote, too.

A Quote by OSHO on fear, love, polarities, flow, acceptance, core fear, healing, and love and fear

With the new is fear because one never knows whether one will be able to do it. One is doing always for the first time, so one is always shaky, uncertain about whether one is going to make it or not. But in that very thrill, in that adventure is life... aliveness, let us say, rather than life, because life has also become a dull and dead word... aliveness, the flow.
  So it is a good indication that you understand what you are getting into. It is love, it is life; it is danger... it is death too. The master has to be all: life and death, day and night, summer and winter, all... Lovely and ferocious, delicate as a flower and hard like a rock. These polarities have to meet in the master because only between these polarities will the disciple grow.
  But there is no way of going back. If there were only fear and no love, I would have told you to go back, because then there is unnecessary trouble; why take the risk? But if love is there then there is no going back. Love knows no going back. It moves ahead; in spite of all difficulties it moves ahead. It is never repentant. And whatsoever happens is good because love is good. Fear will lurk only on the boundaries. Deep in the heart will be love; just on the periphery fear will lurk. If I see fear in somebody's very core then I help him to go, because he will be unnecessarily living in torture. It will be a kind of masochism for him to be here.
  I am here to help you towards transformation: I am not here just to become a torture to you; torture is not a value. But I am not saying that in transformation there is no pain. Pain in itself is of no value, but when pain serves transformation it has great value. So at the core of your heart is love; just on the periphery is a lurking fear. That is very natural; accept that too.       Osho, "Believing the Impossible before Breakfast"

A Quote by Tom Brokaw on environment, earth, hatred, predjudice, and acceptance

"It will do us little good to wire the world if we short circut our souls. There is no delete button for racism, poverty, or sectarian violence. No key stroke can ever clean the air, save a river, preserve a forest. This transformational new technology must be an extension of our hearts as well as of our mind."

Tom Brokaw (1940 -)

If we'd been born where they were born, and taught what they were taught, we would believe what they believe.

A Quote by J. Petit Senn on acceptance

It requires less character to discover the faults of others than it does to tolerate them.
